Not an M201 trailer, M201 production began 55/56.  This is a dutch built copy of the Bantam T3 trailer built by the Roset Company, and is dated 1953.  Thanks for compliment on photographs.

Hard to keep track, these sort of trailers were built all over the place by everybody for years!
Looks great with your motor though!

The Belgian Army actually used a post war Bantam trailer with a hinged tailgate, but then you haven't got an emergency boat, towed behind you, as you have with the no tail gate variety.  Not that I ever see myself floating it anyway.

Mine has so many holes drilled in it that it would sink like a stone! A mate of mine would fill his with water in the summer and use it as a bath to keep cool!  I have seen a picture of  4 G I s paddling down a river in one using their rifles as paddles! cb1
